It isn't just Toronto...

That has a problem with guns and gangs.
A teenager has died after two gunmen opened fire into a car in south-east London. He becomes the 21st teenager to have died as a result of a knife or gun-related crime in London this year.

Operation Trident, which looks at gun crime in London's Afro-Caribbean community, is investigating the killing.
It is interesting to note that, in the same time period, this figure is over half the number of British soldiers who died from all causes (including accidents) in the current Afghanistan conflict.
